I finished this painting last week. Life kept me away from posting it. I did this painting on 11 by 14″ watercolor paper. I rarely paint larger than 9 by 12 inches. I was scared that I would paint rooster too tightly if ever I attempt to do a rooster painting. That dissuaded me from trying to paint a rooster. Luckily,I happen to get a not-so-sharp reference photo. The blurriness really helped me.

Here is a wip photo, the ugly stage in a watercolor painting:
